Resolve error – “The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively.”

Recently one of our client who has an SBS 2003 (also acts as a Domain Controller), faced an issue in logging to the server using the Administrator account. The following error was received “The local policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively“.

This issue was resolved by removing the Administrator account from the Remote Operators group and from the Domain Power Users group.

Note that the Domain Power Users group will always be a member of the Remote Operators group, which should not be changed.
